Privacy Policy   

Last Updated: December 06, 2023

Introduction

Get Weatherized, Inc. dba LayerUp(“GW” “we” “us”) operates LayerUp, a hosted application and any related mobile applications we make available (collectively, the “App”) as well as the public facing website at getlayerup.com (the “Website” and with the App, collectively, “LayerUp”).

This Privacy Policy describes how GW collects, uses, and shares personal information in relation to LayerUp and the services and functionality it provides to its authorized users (the “Service”).  Personal information means information that identifies you or that is or can reasonably be associated with you.  

Personal Information We Collect

We collect personal information that you provide to us and as technical information automatically collected when you visit and interact with LayerUp.

To create an account in order to use the Service, we collect your name and email address.  We also collect other information voluntarily submitted to the Service, such as when you sign up for our newsletter, complete a survey or questionnaire, email us, or access and use LayerUp.  This may include photos and personal information relating to prospective and actual customers (“Homeowners”) of installation companies that have subscribed to access and use LayerUp (“Installers”) submitted by the Installers or their Homeowners directly.  We may collect other information you voluntarily submit to us.

In addition to personal information you deliberately provide us, we collect technical information automatically when you visit and interact with LayerUp.  This information may include your IP address, device type and identifier, browser type and version, operating system, and information about your activity on LayerUp including the date and time you access LayerUp and similar web server log information.  Some of this information could identify or be associated with you and so is personal information.

We also may collect the location of your device for purposes of providing certain location-based features of the Service.  See the section entitled “Location-Based Services” below.

Purposes of Using Personal Information

We may use your personal information in different ways depending on how you use LayerUp, including whether you have created an account or are simply visiting the public facing portions of the Website.  Depending on these circumstances, we may use your personal information to:

Location-Based Services

Some of the features of the Service may enable LayerUp to access your location (through the location of your device) in order to tailor your experience with the Service based on your location (“Location-based Services”). In order to use certain Location-based Services, you must enable certain features of your mobile phone, such as GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, which enable LayerUp to identify your location through a variety of means, including GPS location, IP address, cell tower location, geo-location technology, or detection by physical on-location Wi-Fi or Bluetooth sensors, as available. You may be given the option to automatically enable the provision of some Location-based Services through the App, and to enable or disable such Location-based Services at any time through the Device’s Settings menu. If you choose to disable any Location-based Services on your device and/or opt out of any Location-based Services, you will not be able to utilize certain features of the Service.

When We Disclose Personal Information to Third Parties

We do not share personal information with unaffiliated third parties for their own marketing purposes. We also do not sell your personal information.

We may disclose personal information we collect to third parties as follows:

Third Party Links

LayerUp may contain links to internet sites or third-party applications or widgets operated by other companies that we do not own or control. GW cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of websites or other services operated by third parties. In accessing or using a third-party application or widget through LayerUp, you should review the applicable privacy policy of that third party to determine how they will handle any personal information they collect from you.

Cookies

Cookies are small files that are stored on your browsing device when you visit a website. We use cookies and similar technologies to do a number of things such as remember your preferences, allow certain of our web-based services and features to function, and analyze activity on our Website in an aggregated manner. Cookies do not themselves store information that identifies you, but they are often used in a manner such that they can be associated with you.

Here are the types of cookies you may encounter in using our Website:

Cookies may be set by our Website or by third parties we use for certain functions.  Most internet browser settings will allow you to accept, reject, delete, and otherwise manage cookies set when using that browser. You can find more information about this at https://allaboutcookies.org/. You can also avoid receiving cookies by browsing LayerUp using your browser’s anonymous usage setting (called “Incognito” in Chrome, “InPrivate” for Microsoft Edge, and “Private Browsing” in Firefox and Safari). Blocking our strictly necessary cookies will prevent certain functions of LayerUp and the Service from working properly or at all. 

How Do I Manage My Personal Information?

If you have an account, you can modify certain portions of your personal information associated with your account by logging in and modifying or deleting the information in your account profile and settings.  Certain information such as a name and email address are required in order to maintain an account.  To request a correction or deletion of personal information that you cannot manage through your account or to request that we delete your account, you can contact us with the request at our contact information below. When we delete personal information from your account (or delete your account entirely), we permanently delete your data from LayerUp’s active user database.  The data will thereafter remain in backups of the database until cycled out in accordance with our backup retention practices. You should be aware that traces of data can be recorded in multiple places in an information technology system and therefore it may not be feasible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our servers. 

How Secure Is My Personal Information?

We use reasonable administrative, technical, personnel, and physical measures to safeguard your personal information against accidental loss, theft, or unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification.  

However, GW cannot guarantee the accuracy of any personal information you provide. Also, you should be aware that, particularly with internet-based services such as LayerUp, there is always some risk of unauthorized access or loss of personal information stored in or transmitted to and from LayerUp.

Children Under the Age of 18

LayerUp and the Service are not intended for use by children. If you are under 18, do not use or provide any information to this Website or through any of its features. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from someone under 18, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 18, please contact us at our contact information below.

United States-Based

The Service and Website are hosted and operated in and are intended for use within the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that the information submitted to us or the Service will be transferred to and processed in the United States.  We do not undertake to comply with privacy or data protection laws of other countries. 

Do Not Track Requests

“Do Not Track” (“DNT”) is a preference you can set in your web browser to let the websites you visit know that you do not want them collecting data about you. At this time, LayerUp does not respond to DNT or similar signals. Please refer to the “Cookies” section of this Privacy Policy for more information about how you can decline and manage the placement and use of cookies on your device.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

GW may change this Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes will become effective upon the date of our posting of the revised Privacy Policy here as indicated by the “last updated” date above.  Depending on the extent of the change, we may notify you of the update via email and/or through LayerUp.
